    Here are a few tips for giving your home a bit more appeal from the curb as well as inside to guests or even prospective buyers.

    KITCHEN OR BATHROOM REPLACEMENT

    REPLACE SIDING

    No matter what — whether your siding is wood, brick, or vinyl, make sure to paint it or power wash it to give your home extra curb appeal.

    PLANT FLOWERS AND PLANTS

    Add some glazed pots on the front porch or on your front steps.  During winter, add small evergreens or cold-hearty plants.

    CHANGE/ADD LIGHTS

    Change burned out bulbs throughout your home with warmer incandescent bulbs.

    NO MORE CLUTTER

    Removing clutter automatically makes your home feel bigger and gives you extra room.

    REPAIR ROOF

    Replace missing shingles, or if necessary replace the entire roof with one more appealing, longer lasting, and more functional.

    REPLACE GROUT/REPAINT

    Feel free to re-caulk and even paint bathroom surfaces to make the room look new and clean.  Replace grout or recolor stained all stained grout.

    PATCH WALLS AND TRIM

    Immediately repair all holes in your walls and cracks in any window trim and baseboards.

    CLEAN CARPETING

    Deep clean all your carpets so they look and smell good.  Any smell in a carpet is an instant turn off.  Replace all stained carpeting.

    PAINT

    Make sure each of your smaller rooms is painted white from top to bottom.  The neutral palette will help any possible buyer view the room as larger.

    Also make sure to paint the front door for extra curb appeal!

    LANDSCAPE

    Your front yard is the billboard for your home.  It’s the central piece to the home’s exterior.  Add new shrubbery & plants, power wash your garage door, and make sure all window coverings match and are in good shape.  Make sure the grass is bright green and mowed and manicured.
